Happy Holidays from ACARC December 12, 2012

Posted by lizyanoff in Uncategorized.

From the officers of Albany City Area Reading Council I’d like to wish you wonderful holidays full of opportunities to read and enjoy the festivities of the season.

Please share the love of reading by spreading the word about our New Books for New Homes project.  Send this via email, post to Facebook, or share in any way you can:

New Books for New Homes

15 families in Albany and Troy will be new homeowners with the support of Habitat for Humanity Capital District.  Albany City Area Reading Council and The Book House are working together to provide each family with new books for their new homes.  Schenectady High School students are building bookshelves for each homeowner as well.  Between November 28 and January 1, stop by The Book House in Stuyvesant Plaza to purchase a new book for the homeowners or to make a cash donation.  Books purchased for the “New Books for New Homes” project will be given a 20% discount.  Please note that we cannot accept used books at this time.  If you have questions or would like to make an additional donation, please contact The Book House at 518.489.4761 or Albany City Area Reading Council at acarcny@gmail.com.


Also remember our January meeting.  After the meeting we’ll be sorting the new books so if you can join us to complete the New Books For New Homes project we’d appreciate your help.

Teaching Tier 2 Words to Primary Students

The College of Saint Rose, Standish Room A

Events and Athletics Center

According to Beck, McKeown and Kulcan (2002), teaching 400 tier two words in any given school year will improve students’ comprehension. This workshop will give teachers many ideas and suggestions for teaching tier 2 words to K-3   students explicitly, while conducting interactive read alouds and as a part of writing instruction.

We look forward to seeing you in 2013!

Liz Yanoff, President of the Albany City Area Reading Council
